“Live It Up” With Yonas

YONAS - Live It Up (Artwork)
Fresh off a series of stellar remix releases, Bronx NY’s Yonas has just dropped a new original single and video. “Live It Up” is a serious contender for jam of the summer. The song by itself is an infectious and upbeat singalong with a heavy beat. But the video, shot on Venice Beach, completes the vibe and effortlessly takes you to that place in the sun. Watch it below.

“Live It Up” is the first single from Yonas’ new EP, Going Places.

Brittney Bouchard’s Driving New Single “Paper Airplanes”

10991042_10153035993242856_5143793895508910123_nSometimes all you need is a high-energy pop song, smashed full of hooks. That’s what landed in the inbox this morning, and none too soon for a drizzly Friday. Los Angeles-based singer Brittney Bouchard released her single “Paper Airplanes” back in February, and we somehow missed it – but it’s on repeat around OurStage HQ now. The track starts simply enough with a cool guitar figure against an ambient background and then builds into a radio-ready pop explosion. Hope to hear more from Bouchard soon.

VIDEO: “Heroes” By Brittany Campbell

Brittany CampbellBrittany Campbell, who for some reason is not yet one of the biggest names in pop music, has released an incredible animated video for her track “Heroes.” The song is the title track from the 2014 album, which we told you about here.

Great song, great performance, great production, and great video. What else could you possibly want?

Aloud, those purveyors of pure rock and roll, have released a new video for their single “A Little Bit Low,” from the LP It’s Got To Be Now. It’s an appropriately and increasingly tense clip, as the seconds tick away, boredom bears down, and Jen de la Osa sings, “It’s easy to lose your mind / over nothing… Yeah, we all get a little bit low from time to time.”

All true. Enjoy.
